Martin Brundle’s Grid Walk was interrupted by Megan’s bodyguards
Officials of F1 will stop bodyguards joining the grid after incident with Megan Thee Stallion and Martin Brundle.
Megan was attending the race as a guest of Red Bull, and was approached by Brundle for an interview on the grid.
She initially responded to his questions and was polite, only for her security guards to aggressively shoo him away, telling him ‘he couldn’t do that.’
Brundle responded: ‘I can do that, because I did,’ before calling for more manners and respect from celebrity entourages during grid walks.
According to F1 insiders, Autosport has learned that it will clamp down on grid access for bodyguards in the wake of the incident.
While celebrities on the grid are not required to give interviews to the media, they will be asked to be courteous should they decline to speak.
Brundle spoke about the rule tweaks during the Mexico City Grand Prix weekend, joking that the new rules ‘must be the “Brundle clause”‘ after what happened in Austin, and that it was his ‘claim to fame at last.’
‘I get ignored by Megan Thee Stallion, biffed out the way by a man mountain and then told off by a Malfoy lookalike who doubtless was on his first-ever time to an F1 grid,’ Brundle said.
He continued: ‘I put out a simple tweet about it and got five million impressions – I don’t understand any of that, to be honest.’
Brundle wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night: ‘For the avoidance of doubt I don’t care who visits the F1 grid, the more the merrier.
‘Talk to me, ignore me, shove, wave, hug, call me names, whatever makes you happy.
‘All I ask is that you soak up the atmosphere, enjoy the privilege.
‘I’ve not asked for any grid protocol changes.’
F1 grid access remains restricted compared to 2019 when the series last raced without Covid-19 protocols.
It has gradually opened up the grid though to grant more people access.
Megan Thee Stallion is a three-time Grammy award winner, and is known for songs such as ‘WAP’ and ‘Savage.’
She has a combined social media following across Twitter and Instagram of 33 million followers – around 11 million more than the F1’s official accounts.
